International Studies

International Studies Concentration

The arena of international affairs is the focus of some of the most significant actions of humankind. Whether those of the trader, the diplomat, or the warrior, these actions can bring poverty, prosperity, peace, war, death, humiliation, or glory to individuals and peoples. All take place in an environment lacking the authoritative rules and restraints often found within states. The International Studies Concentration provides an opportunity for the student to focus his studies on the fascinating and vital aspect of human life.

The concentration is designed particularly for those students majoring in politics, economics, history, or modern language. It may also be taken by students majoring in other disciplines at the University. It provides an excellent foundation for those thinking of careers in the foreign service, international organizations, or international business. It aims above all at leading the student to reflect on the unique nature of the international environment in its political, economic, and historical aspects.
